Montgomery Locals 11/6/2019

By Staff | Nov 6, 2019

As Veterans Day is coming upon us, I want to take the opportunity to express the enormous gratitude that I have for every man and woman, both the living and the deceased, who has ever served in the United States Armed Forces. Every person who has ever put on an American uniform has contributed to the freedoms that make our lives so rich and beautiful. Whether they served during war or peace time, in foreign lands or stateside, whether they enlisted or were drafted, their country called upon them and they answered. They stepped into whatever role they were asked to do and did their part to ensure victory and security for our great nation.

Every veteran deserves our thanks and appreciation, although the reality is we can never thank them enough for risking their lives to protect us. While some veterans came home to a much-deserved hero’s welcome with ticker tape parades, others came home from combat and were spat upon and insulted. So when you see a veteran, take the time to let them know that they are appreciated. It may mean far more to them than you will ever know.

If you served in the American military, thank you from the bottom of my heart for my precious freedom. I can’t imagine what my life would be like if it weren’t for everything you did to give me the wondrous and indescribable gift of being a free American. May God grant you His richest blessings.

THOT – “We remember those who were called upon to give all a person can give, and we remember those who were prepared to make that sacrifice if it were demanded of them in the line of duty, though it never was. Most of all, we remember the devotion and gallantry with which all of them ennobled their nation as they became champions of a noble cause.” – Ronald Reagan

Birthday wishes go out to Bo Steward, who will be celebrating on November 6.

Happy birthday to Shawn Harman, who will be commemorating another trip around the sun on November 8.
